  Catwoman movie mauled by critics
Updated 23 July 2004, 09.55
Halle Berry plays Catwoman in the film
The latest big-budget comic book movie, Catwoman, has been given a mauling by critics in the US who have seen it.

James Bond star Halle Berry plays the Catwoman of the film's title, which is based on a character who lives in Gotham City, where Batman is from.

The New York Times newspaper says it's so bad it's an insult to cats, but adds they'd probably sleep through it.

It also said: "Catwoman is a howlingly silly, moderately diverting exercise in high, pointless style."

Some fans weren't happy before the film was even made, as the person behind the mask wasn't the original character Selina Kyle .

Instead film bosses made up a new person called Patience Price for Halle Berry to play.

Even though Catwoman hasn't got good reviews, there are loads of other comic book films coming to cinemas.

New Batman and Superman films, the Fantastic Four and Elektra are all on the way as is a third sequel to Spider-Man and probably X-Men 3 too.
